My long good friend visited my restaurant!

I've been writing this blog since 2006(I update rarely recently though...)
Last Saturday, I had a wonderful guests from USA.

They visited Japan, Osaka for their job(about Animation) and drop by my restaurant.
 I heard that her friend loves the vegetable so I made the veggie nigiri sushi too.



Actually, I've met her at this blog sometime ten years ago.
If I remember correctly, at that time she drop the comment on this blog and I visited her page too.

We don't get contact often but I'm so glad that she remember me and my restaurant!
It was great meeting them in person!

We didn't have much time but I had wonderful talk with them. 

Thank you so much for coming my restaurant!

Our chopsticks...

We have used quality chopsticks for over 40 years.
This chopstick shop is thinking of retirement.
We miss them if they retires, but if they close their shop we have to
change our chopsticks in the future.

These chopsticks are made with tree of "Yoshino Sugi"
It is very expensive nowadays but scent so well!
It is important thing for sushi and Japanese meal.

We still use those chopsticks at least half year until we spent them all.
If you visit our restaurant, please enjoy our chopsticks too!
